Boom Supersonic Overture jet concept

Colorado-based aerospace company Boom Supersonic has finally revealed updated images of its Overture business jet.

Boom Supersonic says the 62.5-meter aircraft will be the fastest jet in the world, hitting speeds of up to Mach 1.7 (2099km/h; 1304mph).

It will also be able to travel up to 4200 nautical miles (7778km).

Made from carbon composite materials, it should be lighter yet stronger and more stable than most rivals.

Its immense speed will come courtesy of four unique Rolls-Royce jet engines.

It will also be capable of running on 100 percent sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) as the goal is for it to have net zero carbon emissions.

It will also feature an automated noise reduction system.

That way, it can take off smoothly without the need for noisy afterburners.


It will then be able to cruise at an altitude of 60,000 feet (18,288 meters).

Inside, it will have a luxurious and well-equipped cabin that carries between 65-80 passengers.

Current renderings show a massive screen ahead of each passenger, along with a small touchpad to control the seat and temperature settings.

The company has already announced it’s opening a ‘superfactory’ in North Carolina to start work on building the jet.

However, its massive testing facility in Colorado is where the first prototype will be housed and honed.

If you think it sounds too good to be true, don’t, because airlines are already taking great interest in the Overture.

Japan Airlines has already ordered 20 and will have input on the design.

Plus, United Airlines has ordered 15 with an option for another 35.

Boom Supersonic is enlisting big names including the US Air Force, Amazon Web Services, and Eaton in the development as well.

Currently, the company aims to have the Overture entering production in 2024, with first flights taking place in 2026.

From there, it hopes to have it in service by 2029.
